It's games like this that make me glad I have a PS3

Summary: I've only had a PS3 for a few months and to be honest, I wasn't initially that interested in the Uncharted games. But a friend of mine told me that they were the first games I should be playing, saying they were like Tomb Raider with a Gears of War cover system and with voice acting that made it seem as if you were watching a movie. Well, he was right.
The Bonus content advertised IS now useable. Originally the DLC codes did not work.

Summary: UNCHARTED 2: Among Thieves Game of the Year Edition. The DLC content codes shipped with the game expired 9/5/2012. The only reason I purchased this particular version was to get the DLC. This is one of my first PS3 purchases for the first PS3 bought for the kids. Very disappointed in my VIP Group Corporation purchase. Really wish I had seen the customer review who already had this issue prior to ordering the game. Buyer beware!
Summary: (UPDATE: This review was put up right when the game came out in October of last year to notify current owners who had an interest in the new edition like myself. Item is still a Great Package for newcomers, except that now it comes in a red case for being part of the Greatest Hits Collection now. Red cases are ugly in my opinion. Game can be described as a hight quality cinematic action title at its best.
Summary: First, before you read this review go buy a copy of Uncharted 2: Among Thieves NOW! This is the most spectacular, mind blowing, jaw-dropping game I've ever played and I've been playing them since the days of Atari. I'm about three-quarters of the way through the game and I'm still seeing amazing gameplay aspects that makes my jaw drop and ask how in the world did they do that. I really don't know how they got the graphics to look this awesome but they did.
Summary: The single player story mode is superb. It combines a lot of different aspects ranging from an all out shooter to platforming and even some stealth. The story is well written and the cutscenes are superbly done. The graphics are top notch, the best of any game and any system so far. The multiplayer is also very fun. It comes in two different modes: standard multiplayer and co-op.
Summary: As someone who's never played Uncharted, I was initially afraid that Uncharted 2 would be hard to follow and get in to. I was pleasantly wrong. Here are my quick impressions: PROS + Excellent level design gives you illusion of freedom - you won't feel as if you are following a linear level progression. + Amazing Story, always fun and interesting while never coming across as too self absorb or melodramatic. + Cool, likeable characters.
Summary: I'm sure if you're reading this you've already read countless other reviews praising the game for it's superb voice acting, mind blowing graphics, wonderful story telling, and it's riveting gameplay. I'm only writing this to enforce all of these things and hopefully tip you over the fence into buying this game immediately. Uncharted 2: Among Thieves contains almost every element that was in the first and improves upon it.
Summary: It's been a couple of weeks since the bomb that is Uncharted 2: Among Thieves has dropped. Did you get caught in its blast? Or have you avoided its fallout? If you have then I say what the hell are you waiting for?? Go get contaminated! It's not all the time a game like Uncharted 2 comes around.
As closer to perfection as it gets: this game is a masterpiece

Summary: This is one of those games that will keep you glued to your TV for hours until you manage to beat it or your bladder explodes, whatever happens first. Right from the start it will submerge you into its world of friendship, adventure, action, betrayal, mystery, and love. The heroes are so likable that you wish they were real so you could go have a beer with them.
